Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Devialet Gemini, Marshall Minor III have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
The Marshall Minor III, at 8g have the same weight as the Devialet Gemini
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds together.
Marshall Minor III also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables linking the two earbuds .
Devialet Gemini are resistant to sweat
Marshall Minor III's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, what this means is that Devialet Gemini's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Marshall Minor III and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
Devialet Gemini stay tightly in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
The Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound produced by the earbuds.
Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini produce a juicier bass than the Marshall Minor III
The Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Devialet Gemini's measurement is 94dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Devialet Gemini's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Marshall Minor III's battery life is less than that of Devialet Gemini by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Devialet Gemini's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Marshall Minor III's charging case has a battery life of 25 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 7 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Marshall Minor III takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini's battery capacity is 55mAh, battery capacity, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
The Devialet Gemini, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you just put down on a compatible charging pad.
Marshall Minor III also support wireless charging, take note of the charging standard of a device.
Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights show the charging status of your earbuds and case.
Marshall Minor III too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
Devialet Gemini use USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Marshall Minor III too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
Devialet Gemini have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Marshall Minor III has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, newer than that of Devialet Gemini . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Devialet Gemini have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Marshall Minor III have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Devialet Gemini will work well with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
Devialet Gemini support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
The Marshall Minor III support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
Devialet Gemini have 2 microphones.
While the Marshall Minor III microphones are 2, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . More microphones record better sound quality and enable the earbuds to filter out noise.
Devialet Gemini have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are intended to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
The Devialet Gemini support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises to still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
The Devialet Gemini have in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the device can detect when they are removed from your ears so that the music is paused.
